OUR PREDICTION: The 49ers have played poorly defensively this preseason, surrendering 17 points to the Chiefs in their opener, then 33 points to the Broncos and 32 points to the Vikings. Granted, the Chargers haven't been stellar offensively but they did allow 48 points to the Seahawks in their preseason opener so they're not above surrendering a bunch of points. I like the over tonight.
